The Blue Angels


The Blue Angels Perform During A Practice Session

The Blue Angels practice over Naval Air Station Pensacola beginning at 8:30 AM during the show season. The Museum of Naval Aviation at NAS Pensacola has a viewing area for visitors to watch the team practice. The team visits the museum to answer questions and sign autographs after Wednesday practices. Wednesday practices are highlighted in red below.

Bleachers are made available for approximately 1,000 spectators or you can bring a lawn chair. The team is very prompt so be assured that the show will commence on time. Each show is approximately 1 hour. Practices are subject to change without prior notice due to inclimate weather conditions.
